Comment from: (Patient) Published: July 28

In Feb. of 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Went through lumpectomy, chemo and 30 days of radiation. I am now a week away from a total mastectomy due to recurrence in my left breast. Wish I had it all to do over, I would have chosen mastectomy for sure. Don't know yet if anything else is involved, but am praying for the best while preparing for the worst, but I am just being realistic. Good luck and many prayers go out to anyone in the same spot.
